One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.
But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.
When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away

As a fan of the Beautiful Bastard series, I had high hopes and had such impatience for reading this novel! Sweet Filthy Boy is the first book in the Wild Seasons Series by Christina Lauren, and introduces us to two incredible characters who will definitely steal your heart.
Mia Holland is such a sweet young woman, whose delicate demeanour, yet fierce determination to lie her life makes her an admirable and likeable heroine.
We meet Mia as she enters a transitional period in he life, graduating college and trying to find her way in the world. After a devastating accident shatters her dreams, she decides she deserves to throw a little caution to the wind, before she attempts to settle down. And it is that very caution and a drunken night out with her girlfriends in Las Vegas, that leads Mia straight to the sexy and incredibly enigmatic, Ansel Guillaume.
Ansel, oh where to begin describing this gorgeous French man. As if you thought it were impossible for Christina Lauren to create yet another perfect alpha male, with a heart filled to the brim with gold, compassion and love and one dirty bloody mouth!
This is one of the most beautiful love stories of passion and the intense connection two people share. It is also about the chances we take in life and how those very chances lead us down unexpectedly incredible paths. This is a sassy, intelligent and incredibly sensual novel and it has definitely left me wanting more. And I cannot wait to read what is next!!
I highly recommend you get your hands on Ansel!

Lauren Billings (but everyone calls her Lo) has a Ph.D. in neuroscience and before she made writing her full-time job, would spend her days doing nerdy research-type things wearing a lab coat and goggles. She is silly Mommy to two littles, wife to one mountain biking homebrewing scientist, bestie to a shoe-stealer, and an unabashed lover of YA and romance.
Christina Hobbs (but you’ll always hear Lo call her PQ) used to spend her days in a junior high counseling office surrounded by teenagers. Married to the cutest boy in school, she has a thirteen year old daughter, is an unapologetic lover of boy bands and glitter, and also likes to steal Lo’s shoes.
